  • Publication number: 20180106414
    Abstract: A vacuum insulated structure including a tube having an outer wall, a jacket surrounding the tube to enclose an annular insulating space, the jacket having an end that terminates at the outer wall of the tube, a seal formed between the end of the jacket and the tube to preserve a vacuum within the insulating space, and a fitting affixed to one of the tube and the jacket for coupling the vacuum insulated structure to an external device. A method of making a vacuum insulated structure including forming a tube and a jacket, positioning the jacket over the tube to form an annular insulating space, with an end of the jacket being positioned adjacent to an outer wall of the tube to form a vent, causing air to escape through the vent, sealing the vent, and affixing a fitting to one of the tube and the jacket.

  • Publication number: 20170225276
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides compositions and methods for forming three-dimensional structures atop substrates. These structures may be formed and processed so as to braze together two substrates. The structures may be controllably formed in three dimensions so as to accommodate virtually any substrate geometry or configuration. The structures may also be disposed so as to maintain spacing between two surfaces.

  • Publication number: 20110264084
    Abstract: An insulated cooling probe including a probe sleeve assembly having an annular insulating jacket shaped in the vicinity of an evacuation vent to achieve a deeper vacuum within the insulating space than is applied to the vent, and a coolant inlet passageway and a coolant exit passageway bounded by a coolant passageway wall disposed within the insulating jacket, the probe also including a cooling tip extending outwardly from the sleeve assembly at one end of the probe and including a cooling region into which coolant enters from the coolant inlet passageway and from which coolant exits into the coolant exit passageway. The coolant expands across an orifice when upon exiting the coolant inlet passageway and entering the cooling tip. The coolant flowing in the coolant inlet passageway is pre-cooled in a heat transfer region of the probe by transferring heat to coolant flowing in the coolant exit passageway.

  • Patent number: 7681299
    Abstract: An article includes walls defining an insulating space therebetween and a vent forming an exit for gas molecules during evacuation of the space. A distance separating the walls is variable in a portion adjacent the vent such that gas molecules are directed towards the vent imparting a greater probability of molecule egress than ingress such that deeper vacuum is developed without requiring getter material. The variable-distance portion may be formed by converging walls. Alternatively, a portion of one of the walls may be formed such that a normal line at any location within that portion is directed substantially towards a vent opening in the other wall.
